The Yansa has 7 rooms in total where each room can sleep up to 1-2 people (up to 12 people maximum/ trip). All rooms are Japanese style rooms where you will be sleeping on futons in a tatami room. There are no private toilets or showers in the guests rooms and toilets are shared amongst other guests (and two shower rooms).

Guests staying at the Yansa will eat breakfast every morning at the lodge. For dinner, the first night (and 3rd night for 4-day trip guests) will be at a local restaurant called  “Ten” in town which is about a 10min drive (guides will drive all guests to the restaurant). This restaurant is an “izakaya”, which is  a place where people not only eat but also drink. Dinner at this izakaya will be grilled meat and vegetables. This is a great place to meet Shimamaki local’s as well! Dinner for the 2nd night (and 4th night for 4-day trip guests) will be local seafood meals at the Yansa.

Please note that the cat staging area is about a 20 minute drive from lodge. HBC guides will be driving guests to the cat staging area and back.
